points on the backs of weary travelers. it should be to fix the problem. look, the obama administration knew about the sequester for months, for months, yet it gave the traveling public and congress only three days' notice before implementing the furloughs that are now being blamed for these delays. the f.a.a. administrator testified before the commerce and appropriations committees last week but made no mention of the magnitude and impact of delays of these furloughs that were just right around the corner. it seems completely bluesable t- completely implausible to me when hthat he didn't mention thn he testified last week. this episode is a perfect illustration of why republicans sought to give the administration even greater flexibility to ensure they could prioritize essential services. one of the areas for which that flexibility was intended was air traffic control. the fact that the administration rejected it strongly suggests a political motive is at play here. i would also remind everyone that this flexibility was reflected by nearly every -- rejected by nearly every democrat in
examine. the third emerged during the last ten years of president obama's first term. over this period, the president, as we remember, vividly, i'm sure, faced relentless pressure from benjamin netanyahurc wi conress and wi the poe eny i this pressure forced the president into humiliating retreats from positions on a settlement freeze, on the potential borders of a palestinian state and urgent need of a state staked out first two years in office. as anybody's who's followed this conflict knows, these were positions previously taken by succession of the u.s. president, but this president was obliged to abandon them. it was not palestine on which he focused almost interly in the first two years in office, but the question of iran's nuclear program, benjamin netanyahu's preferred subject, in exchange ever since. the climb down was complete, and i argue that was seen, yet again, in the bulk of the speech therntly in jerusalem. s writing on the subject, and, aain, the corrupt language played a crucial role. for decades, the repeated man tray of a peace process served to obscure reality. thi
as well as the nomination of sylvia burr well, president obama's pick to head the office of management and budget. and for more on thenline sales tax bill we spoke earlie a r withpil reporter. >> they're going to be focusing on an issue that i think really hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention but it is going to affect most americans and that is, whether or not you pay sales taxes when you buy something online. this is a huge issue for your pocketbook if you buy something on amazon.com or ebay. chances are pretty good right now that you don't pay sales taxes on that purchase but you do if you go to wal-mart.com, or if you go to a brick-and-mortar store and that is because of these convoluted rules who has charge letaxes and who doesn't. the senate wants to, or at least looks like a majority of the senate is going to pass this bill this week. 75 senators voted for a version of this bill a few weeks ago when the senate passed its budget resolution. it is a nonbinding vote. this would be a binding bill that would then go over to the house and it would -- >> what would the bill -- >> very
